Dick Tracy Blu-ray

Posted October 3, 2012 01:21 AM by Ryan Seiler

Walt Disney StudiosDisney/Buena Vista is bringing the yellow-coated detective himself, Dick Tracy, to Blu-ray. Specs and special features have yet to be revealed. The comicstrip-noire classic starring Warren Beatty, Madonna and Al Pacino, shoots to its Blu-ray debut December 11th.

Legendary police detective Dick Tracy (Beatty), is the only man tough enough to take on gangster boss Big Boy Caprice and his band of menacing mobsters. Dedicated to his work but at the same time devoted to his loyal girlfriend, Tess Trueheart, Tracy find himself torn between love and duty. His relentless crusade against crime becomes even more difficult when he gets saddled with an engaging orphan and meets seductive and sultry Breathless Mahoney (Madonna), a torch singer determined to get the best of Tracy. A faceless character, known as the Blank, threatens both Tracy and Big Boy, and it takes all of Tracy's skills to save the city.

I don't get why is Disney so poised to re-make every film when they can make sequels, this will be a great one!
I can't wait!

I love the art direction in this film! It's bound to look even more beautiful on Blu-ray.

this was/is a BIG COLOR film I hope the HD brings that out. the 1080i hd version shown on tv was not very good IMO.

Ryan, Dick Tracy IS colorful, but it ain't film noir.

The music in the trailer makes it seem a lot more silly than I remember... I haven't seen this in a long time though... is it that silly? I remember it being more serious.

It's Dick Tracy, so it's not *not* silly. But it's definitely not all played for laughs and camp value.

and yes this is done in the film noir style, even if its not nearly as dark as a typical film noir its still got the same style.

of all films ive wanted to see on blu ray, it has been Dick Tracy. the film is so beautiful and colorful especially the art direction it would be stunning on blu ray. considering disney is releasing it i have no doubt it will be a beautiful transfer. i had read Warren Beatty himself has been supervising the transfer recently since he did direct it so heres hoping!

An ESSENTIAL Pacino movie. But the rest of the film? Eh...

The first film in 5.1 CDS (Cinema Digital Sound). Saw it at the Pacific El Capitan in 1990...the sequence with Tracy trapped in the basement with the boiler about to explode was one of the *loudest* things I had heard in the theater up to that point, but it was crystal clear and not distorted at all. Very impressive. A nice tour-de-force for the matte painting skills of Disney's VFX department (before they purchased Dream Quest Images and turned them into The Secret Lab). Terrific make-ups too.

It's too bad Disney considered it a box office disappointment: it made back its money but not enough in Disney's eyes after the high budget and all the marketing poured into it.

Please, Disney, don't put anything other than a trailer, I fear you may not have enough space on a Blu-ray for any significant special feature nowadays... plus, it would screw the transfer, so... ah, sarcasms.

Beatty spoke of wanting to do a lot of special features and perhaps even a directors cut..I hope we get both

This is a film that should greatly benefit from an HD release, especially considering how lackluster the letterboxed DVD was.

Actually, Beatty doesn't believe in supplements and the director's cut was an internet concoction. Beatty said his theatrical cut was his director's cut and he doesn't know where the rumor of a longer cut started.

The words "colorful" and "film-noir" don't mix. As someone mentioned above, this movie IS colorful but it's not a film noir.
